    I love your shirt! Can you tell me what size you are wearing? I have never ordered from Aritzia, so I’m not sure about their sizing. I usually wear xxs-xs and I am leaning towards xxs, but don’t want it to be too small…thank you!

      This top is the classic fit, so it runs a little more fitted and smaller than their normal shirts. I got a small and it’s a little tighter than I’d like a flannel to be, but still wearable. Just for reference, I’m normally a xxs xs in their tees and tanks.

    Ack that flannel is on sale! I shouldn’t get it, but I feel like I need it. Such a good fit and pattern.

    I love your jacket. I’ve never ordered from Sheinside, so I’m not familiar with their sizing or quality. I generally wear a Medium. Should I size up to a Large or stick with my normal M size? I love the oversized look on you!

      Thank you! I’m normally an xs, but since they don’t make that, I went with a small. Their coats typically run small, so I would say size up.
